Welcome to the Illinois Quality Afterschool Quarterly Newsletter
We at SEDL are thrilled to be providing technical assistance and professional development to Illinois 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grantees. We’ve met many of you at the spring conference and grantee workshops, and we look forward to getting to know the rest of you as we continue our work.
SEDL has been a national leader in the field of afterschool since the inception of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. We encourage you to check out some of our free online resources:
- Afterschool Training Toolkit
- Professional Development Guides
- Instructor’s Guides
- A Practitioner’s Guide to Building and Managing Quality Afterschool Programs
- Common Core State Standards Videos
- Family and Community Engagement Webinars
If you haven’t done so already, please join our Illinois Quality Afterschool Facebook Group. Once you have joined us online, click “Join Group” in the upper, right-hand corner. Once one of our administrators has approved your request, you can join the conversation. The Facebook group is intended to foster conversation among Illinois 21st CCLC grantees. We hope it will provide a forum through which you can share ideas, strategies, challenges, and successes with fellow grantees.
We look forward to working with you.
Sincerely,SEDL’s Illinois Quality Afterschool Team
